    The MOTUC General Sunder Thread

    So, I thought I would get in on this recent thread craze as the possible announcement of the FilMation rights at SDCC continues to grow.

    Now, there are a LOT of FilMation characters that I want brought into the line, many of them already have threads, but King Micah, Ahgo and Grox, King Miro (adapted from the cartoon in the same manner as Randor was for the toy) are all high on my list as well. But so is General Sunder. Personally, I think we was one of the best written somewhat minor characters (though he had just as many appearances as many other characters) on the PoP show and his design is just great. I think he would make for a very striking figure with his armor and plumed helmet, especially since they are qualities that are not rampantly represented in MOTU. Plus, I think it would be very cool if they repurposed his base body, added a Horde symbol and gave us a two-pack of Horde Officers to help boss around the Troopers.

    So, is there more support to be shown for this well-written character that could be a potentially awesome figure?

    Apparently so...

    From the talented customs realm of Mr. Hunter...


    to a video tribute by org member Canadian He-Man

    (from his tribute thread)


    General Sundar appeared in Unexpected Ally (Season One: Episode 53) and Return of the General(Season Two: Episode 2) The latter episode I need to watch again -it has been ages!

    I believe these are the only episodes he was in. Perhaps our resident cartoon genius, Manny, can you confirm this?

    Personally, I like the character and would welcome him in my MOTUC collection!

    Wow, Hunter Knight's take on him is fantastic.

    Agree this would be a great figure addition to the MOTUC line. I would want the Horde symbol on his chest as in the HunterKnight custom, but I would be very happy if the symbol was removable (for Rebellion version). I would also want a removable helmet, thought that seems unlikely for this line. So an unhelmated head would be a must.

    Include his head and cape in with the Horde Trooper 2-pack. . .and I guess make the Horde Symbol removable.

    This could be a great idea... So long as they listen to us and give us a whole lotta extra's on this guy.
    We don't need no education...

    Yes you do, you've just used a double negative!

    I whole-heartily agree with this thread! General Sundar would make an excellent MOTUC figure and is great re-use of the Horde Trooper pieces.

    I loved him the first time he stepped on screen! I'm surprised I didn't speak up earlier.

    General Sunder deserves a MOTUC figure, but not before 2 or 3 years.

    There are too many cool characters with a much better look, begging to be released first !

    I guess he could reuse some Horde Troopers parts... Of course, we need Horde Troopers first.

    I am sorry, but I always find this application as "logic" to be rather curious. Even if we set aside the subjective stance of "too many characters with a much better look" assertion, past 2009, release patterns have not favored "important" chracters in this line at all. That is a sure-fire way to shorten the life. It is about balance. For this character, and for any other of his popularity stature, there is a place for them in a regular release pattern that is not relegated to the moving target of "2 or 3 years down the road".

    The same can be said about just about every other Filmation character that has been released in the main line. I am glad for the additional details.
    Most Wanted: Karg, General Tataran, King Miro, King Ahgo, Ileena, Zilora, Melaktha, Hawke, Lizorr, Dylamug, Enchantress, Colonel Blast, Kol-Darr, Snowflake, Lodar, King Tamusk, Hunga the Harpy, King Micah, Uncle Montork, Dree-Elle and The Twiggets.

    Why yes, yes it can. But here, the issue is that Sunder isn't as simple and streamlined anymore. Putting a few extra subtle details on She-Ra's gauntlets won't change the visual impact very much. But those robotic gashes in his thighs are unsightly and I am not fond of the boots and calves either. From the waist up he looks pretty good but I really just wanted a straight Filmation translation here and I'm very disappointed that that isn't happening, because I doubt we will get another shot at this figure.

    I agree that someone like Castaspella looks pretty much perfectly Filmation even with a few small added details but Sunder does not.

    This is about parts reuse. Sunder has little to do with the aesthetics of the vintage Horde MOTU figures. He was Filmation through and through. So, this feels as frustrating as Failmation Hordak did in a way. I may just be the only one annoyed by it because he's a comparatively minor character.

    Personally, I'm more annoyed by the lack of an un-helmeted head than I am by the parts re-use. Sure, Sunder comes with three alternate heads for Horde Troopers, but he's a character worthy of having how own alternate head.

    He needs black feet.. other than that I think this figure is great and close enough to the cartoon for me. I hope they release red knight too.

    Anyone notice the awesome new weapon included with general Sunder, the horde battleaxe (half Blade) looks amazing. Seems like no one mentioned it from toyfair.

    Quite pleased indeed! Now I just need to decide if I am going to not shut up about General Tataran, Ileena, King Ahgo, or Zilora next.

    I understand wanting the sleeker Filmation Design because it's faithful to the source Material. (I kinda do)
    Mattel could have easily had the Horsemen make a Sleeker armor for the General and it would have looked cool.
    (Maybe Reusing Extendar's thighs with new Lower legs and maybe new arms)
    But in all fairness, in the cartoon Sunder's armor was a slightly Modified Horde Trooper armor. So, it makes sense to have a "Classics Sunder" being a slightly modified Classics Horde Trooper armor.

    Now if they make a Lohni, THAT would be interesting... I'd probably get 2 to make a non-Despara FC Adora out of one...

    Please don't shut up about those. Ileena and Zilora are two of my most wanted, and I'd gladly make room for the other two, as well.
